Gangsta Granny are looking for a dancer to perform at Storyhouse!

Friday 2 March 2018

Gangsta Granny are looking for a local female dancer aged 18+ to join the cast of David Walliams’s hit shows for its Chester dates.

Birmingham Stage Company, the acclaimed producers of the hit David Walliams play Gangsta Granny, are looking for a local young dancer to play a small but crucial part in the show when it plays at Storyhouse from 11-14 April as part of its current UK tour. Producers are interested in hearing from female dancers, aged 18 and over, with a playing age of 11-12 years for this exciting opportunity.

Anyone wishing to be considered for the role should send a demo video of herself performing a short modern/disco piece to gangstagranny@birminghamstage.com. The successful dancer will then be sent a video of the 2-minute dance she will be performing in the show to learn the choreography. To be considered for this paid role, applicants must be available for all Gangsta Granny performances, both daytimes and evenings, at Storyhouse during the run.

Neal Foster, the show’s director, said today: “This is a really good opportunity for a young dancer just starting in the profession to get a great addition to the CV as well as gain valuable on stage experience acting with a professional company in a show rated 4 stars by national critics. We envisage full houses at Storyhouse, so the girl chosen will have a week to remember, dancing a solo in front of huge enthusiastic audiences. Whoever is selected will find it a wonderful and unforgettable experience!”

Gangsta Granny is the story of Ben and his grandmother. It’s Friday night and Ben knows that means only one thing – staying with Granny! There will be cabbage soup, cabbage pie and cabbage cake, and Ben knows one thing for sure, it’s going to be so boring. But what Ben doesn’t know is that Granny has a secret – and Friday nights are about to get more exciting than he could ever imagine as he embarks on the adventure of a lifetime with his very own Gangsta Granny! It’s laugh-out-loud funny, but also has some very moving and truthful things to say about family relationships. The show was premiered in 2015 and has been touring the UK ever since, as well as enjoying a West End season in summer 2017.
